Intro To Anthem

After visiting, the next best step is to attend Intro to Anthem, Intro to Anthem is a great chance for everyone who is new (or newish) to connect with some of the leaders, hear our story and learn how to get plugged in and connected to Anthem. We discuss a bit of who we are and leave time for any questions you may have about the church. 

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. At Anthem you’ll find a group of real people learning to follow Jesus together.

We believe everyone is welcome as they are to explore the good life Jesus so frequently teaches about. From the parking lot, to kids check-in, to grabbing a cup of coffee, you’ll find a community of people who are genuinely glad you’re here!

Alpha is for anyone who's curious about faith or has major doubts and big questions. It's safe to ask any question and the evenings focus on listening, exoploring together and being real and authentic.

Anthem Ventura is hosting Alpha, a series of dinner conversations that explore life, spirituality and faith in a fun, non-judgmental and open environment. 

It’s perfect for skeptics, curious, anyone with major doubts or hurts or those who just want to talk about the real issues of life with new friends. If you want to know more we'd love to have you join us at the Alpha Launch Party - a one-off fun evening to decide if Alpha is for you.

Where we come from

Having experienced the love of Jesus and the hope that He brings in our own lives, we started Anthem Church with the desire to help people find their way back to God and bring a movement of reproducing churches to our cities. 

We dreamed about helping people who were far from God find their hope in Jesus. We dreamed of helping people who were disconnected from the church find community in the people of God. We dreamed of helping all people find their purpose in the mission of Jesus. 

We wanted to be a church that equips, encourages and releases people into the gospel adventure, empowered by the Holy Spirit. 

We knew that if these dreams were going to happen we would need everyone doing their part, giving their lives. We are a people on mission together.

That was the genesis of Anthem. A church that would never stop making disciples and empowering people to take the name of Jesus to the nations. A church that would fight against the comforts and easy paths to stay focused on the mission of Jesus. 

Where we're headed

Our vision is to bring a movement of reproducing churches empowered by the Gospel of Jesus to love and serve southern California. Our dream for the future is not that one church be built up, but that Anthem would be a part of a reproducing church movement throughout the world. To do this, we believe that the culture of Anthem must be centered around not just doing the work of the Gospel, but reproducing the work of the Gospel. 

What This Means for you

What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Anthem Church. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you're welcome here.
